where to download binary files, deleted /usr/bin/find


I accidentally deleted /usr/bin/find binary file in my system. Now since all the installation methods require 'find' binary, i couldn't do anything. Can you tell me where to download or reinstall find?

My os is linux mint 15

The find command is part of the findutils package. Try reinstalling it using your package manager.

I can't

I already tried, it is saying, it could not find 'find' in /usr/bin/ directory. Apparently the package manager as well as command line needs 'find' binary to work.

# 3 .

Well, then you can download the package 'findutils_4.4.2*',
and reinstall with $ sudo dpkg -i findutils_4.4.2*

Or unpack with $ dpkg -x findutils_4.4.2* ./
.. and copy the executable 'find' to /usr/bin/

64bit http://se.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/...ntu1_amd64.deb
